The most read book in July was Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros. It is not a novel that I am familiar with. That goes to show you how many books and authors have huge followings that you won’t come across.
Coming in second is Happy Place by Emily Henry. She has established herself as one of the best romance writers over the past couple of years. Happy Place has been a novel I have seen everywhere and one I expect to see again on many end of year lists.
In third place Housemaid is by Freida McFadden, another novel unknown to me. Fourth place goes to Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus, a novel that has been selling like hotcakes this year. McFadden makes another appearance in the top 5 with Never Lie.
The top ten includes some of the most popular books of the past couple of years. Novels such as A Court of Thorns and Roses, Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow have been fan favorites for a long time.
That wraps up this list of the most read books of July. You can see the full list here. How many of these books have you read? Let us know in the comments below!
